Two persons were arrested early this morning (Monday, Feb. 5, 2018) after a Russell County Sheriff’s Deputy stopped a vehicle in the Eli community that had a “meth lab” inside it.
At approximately 3:00 a.m., Deputy Dustin Bunch pulled over a KIA SUV near the Eli Café’ after observing the vehicle being operated in a suspicious manner. A few moments into the vehicle stop, the passenger told the Deputy there was a “meth lab” under his seat.
In addition to the “one step meth lab” underneath the front passenger seat, numerous precursors were also found in the vehicle.
The driver, 26 year old Denisha Brown of Russell Springs, and the passenger, 34 year old Brandon Luttrell of Dunnville, were both arrested and lodged in the Russell County Detention Center on numerous charges including Manufacturing Methamphetamine and Possession of Meth Precursors.
Deputy Bunch was assisted by Sgt. Mark Cromwell and Detective Joey Hoover of the sheriff’s department and Officer Ethan Pike of the Russell Springs Police Department.
